Tina Zellmer is a german illustrator who, after graduating in Illustration & Design in the Netherlands, has travelled extensively, collecting moments and inspirations from all corners of the world to influence her unique style. Currently based in Berlin, Tina works on a wide range of commissions in the publishing, corporate, and advertising industries. She also lectures in Illustration and Photography.
Her work harmoniously blends dreamy textures and ideas with stark and graphic elements. The artwork combines the strengths of collage, painted textures, fotography and handmade ink drawings. The materials she uses tell part of the story: through the stains, old collage, dents and cracks she creates beautiful, powerful images with multiple layers to ‘read’.
After volunteering for a charity organization in Africa, Tina remains dedicated to working for good causes and using her work to help and inspire others.
Her clients include BBC, The Financial Times, LA-Times, VITRA Design, The Sydney Morning Herald, Financial Review Magazine, Range Rover, KFC, Dresdner Bank, WDV Publishing, Mercedes/Daimler Chrysler, STERN, Lonely Planet, ARTE, WPP advertising, Tearfund, AOK, HM Revenue & Customs
